Xavier Foley has announced “The Solo Book”, which compiles all of the double bassist’s solo music into a PDF. That includes 30 pieces of music, but Foley explains the book will be updated and emailed to you every time he writes a new solo piece.
The International Society of Bassists will be holding their biennial bass convention virtually this year from June 8th through the 12th. The bass-filled event will have over 150 concerts, lectures, and masterclasses for attendees.
The world is still socially distanced, but that’s not stopping the San Francisco Symphony and Northern California Chamber Music Academy from presenting the San Francisco 25th annual Winter Bass Bash.
Xavier Foley’s virtuosity on the double bass is evident as soon as he starts playing. His amazing composition skills are often on display as well. Here’s a spellbinding performance of his original piece “Irish Fantasy” that takes you on a tour of the Emerald Isle and the bass at the same time. Check out his bow hair by the end!
